boredom = faggotry

who says prisons are boring?

while other prisons' are overflowing with bravado and beefcake, the 1,500+ inmates of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center are doing Michael Jackson.

I saw a foreign indie film few years back about a ballet dancer who painstakingly taught a group of hardcore weed smokin' gang to leap, pas de deux and pirouette on their toes. Of course, the movie ends up with a bam-bam-tear-jerky-bow-moment. The third world has a fair share of these cheesiness festival, and its happening inside a notorious facility, I mean it is so cheesy I'm having lactose intolerance.

Though
I must say, I was amazed by the fact that instead of cell riot and vandalizing their skin with senseless graffiti like "I LOVE BEKYA" "Punks not dead!" and "papa canton ako" ... these people has creatively formulated an alternative activity to kill boredom. There has been activities in the past like livelihood programs, arts and crafts, cross stitching sessions and bible study where they can divert their energy and time. But these folks are doing something out of the box--Synchronized dancing. They've been practicing everyday and they will be shot on the head if they don't participate (OK I'm exaggerating)



now here's an encore televised in one of those popular morning shows


dang! they are so popular now in youtube! and I won't be surprised to find out that they are now rehearsing for their Pussycat Dolls repertoire!

Fine, so everyone's turning gay now?
